Stayed from 23-26 June. Check-in was a smooth process, with front-desk staff friendly. However, while i do not doubt the security in this hotel, i was bemused with the bellboy actions. He agreed to take care of the luggage, but after checking in, we saw our baggage unattended, with the bellboy nowhere to be found. Rooms are spacious, the beds... More

Considering the hotel has been around for a while, I must say it's commendable that the hotel is still well maintained. The room is clean, and feels homely. Breakfast and lunch serve wide selection of food. Front desk provided hassle free service. Great location.... Conveniently located along the beautiful Gurney Drive , yet not too close to the chaotic traffic... More

A really great hotel for family vacation. Pretty much have everything you need to when you just wanna chill in the hotel. Bare in mind that it is quite an old hotel, which means it might not look as moderny acceptable on first sight. Talked to some locals, it used to be like a super 5 stars hotel around the... More

Hotel located at sea front. Close proximity to restaurants and hawker center nearby. Spacious room with good sea view, traditional settings and furniture; welcome fruits and complimentary supply of drinks in mini bar (which was not a common practice in most hotels). But the drain of the washing basin was a bit stuck and shower not strong enough. On the... More

This hotel sits near the waterfront of Gurney Drive. The room is spacious with a king size bed in the middle. All the usual comforts of the hotel are there. But the TV reception got to be fine tune as there was grainy picture in all the channels. The WC does not have water for washing. The surrounding areas are... More

This hotel would have been a standout in its day but it needs a makeover. The location is great - on the waterfront and close to some excellent hawker food locations but needs some money spent on it. Once this happens it can be great again

Clean and spacious room, walking distance (15 to 20min) to Gurney Plaza and local hawker food. Few minutes walk to the popular (I believed is popular from the crowd there) seafood restaurant Bali Hai, they also serve dim sum for breakfast. Hotel breakfast was not that great but acceptable. Overall was a pleasant stay value for money.

Spacious room with great views. Short walk to hawker food. Walking distance to Paragon @Gurney & Gurney Plaza. Great shopping malls. Helpful staff with public transport & directions. Long way from the airport.

Excellent place to stay in Penang - for business or food! Check out the Song River nearby, walk to the Northem or catch a cab to Red Square for my favourite chicken satay sticks! The hotel is best value for money in Penang - everything you need, clean and comfortable and safe.
